I'm in the same boat...trying to decide between Sprint & Verizon. Haven't had a cellphone in years. We average about 700 minutes of total phone time per month, have never texted & probably never will. About half that talk time is to Verizon lines. I want an android (Incredible or Evo) and the wife wants a basic flip phone (talk only). With Verizon, I can get 700 minutes (which will be enough) for $70 - then add $30 for net on my line, & the total is $100 That's the cheapest route for us. HOWEVER, for only $30 more, I could go with Sprint and get 1500 minutes, texting, and net for both phones. I'm at a point now that I really need a phone. Both carriers are good in my area (Verizon only slightly better) The Incredible will be out before the Evo - so that is leading me toward VZW (that plus the cheaper plan) I do get 20% off VZW and 22% off Sprint What if I DO go with VZW and don't get the texting option? If someone sends a text will I be charged for it, or do I have to accept it to be charged? Any and all suggestions welcomed!
